Golf Holidays 2010 - The Costa Del Sol
The sport of golf, played on any fine course, certainly satisfies one's need for embracing the great outdoors. The satisfaction quotient is definitely
higher when you combine golf with a vacation. This is where Spain steps up admirably. The country offers holidaymakers myriad opportunities for
enjoying the game and some sun, sand and surf.
One region known for great golf getaways is the 'Coast of the Sun,' Costa del Sol. Located in the south of Spain, Costa del Sol is in the autonomous
community of Andalucia. Costa del Sol encompasses coastal towns and communities along the Mediterranean coast of Malaga province. The city of
Malaga is in this popular tourist region.
The region is home to approximately 60 lush golf resorts from Sotogrande in the west to Velez Malaga in the east. Combined, these golf destinations
contribute significantly to Spain's tourist economy.
The lure for golfers in Costa del Sol is the dry, sunny weather conducive to pleasurable playing. Golfing in Costa del Sol in the winter is the perfect
antidote to the grey, cold climates of northern Europe.
With golf's popularity growing significantly in the past 20 years, Costa del Sol's influx of tourist euros grows too. Golf vacation providers work hard to
attract clientele their way. For golfers, some providers offer personalized green fee booking at some of the finest courses in Costa del Sol and other
regions. Competition for holidaymakers' euros is intense, so bargains await those looking to golf in the region.
Preferred bookings at discount prices signify the high demand for tee times in these exotic locales. Often, golfers can obtain special rates if they book
golf course times in conjunction with accommodations or other services. Vacation golf packages abound on the Internet offering packages to golf in
Antequera, Benalmadena, Marbella's Golden Mile and more.
Similar deals are available too for those considering a Majorca holiday.
